Total Time to makes 3 servings – 30 min.
Preparing: 20 min. + Cooking: 10 min.
- heavy whipping cream: 1-1/3 cups
- 3 egg yolks
- Viking Farms Maple Syrup: 1 teaspoon
- brown sugar: 1/2 cup
- cinnamon (grounded): 1/4 teaspoon
- water: 1 cup
- Viking Farms Maple Sugar: 1-1/2 teaspoons

To cook Maple Creme Brulee we need a pressure cooker. Select saute setting on a 6-qt. and adjust for low heat. Add cream and heat it until you see bubbles form around cooker’s sides. Select cancel setting.
Whisk egg yolks, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir into egg-mixture a small amount of hot cream from the pressure cooker. Return all to the cooker, stirring constantly. Stir in maple syrup.
Prepare three greased 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups and transfer cream mixture to them. Wipe pressure cooker clean and pour in a cup of water; place trivet insert in bottom. Place ramekins on trivet, offset stacking as needed, and loosely cover with foil to prevent moisture from getting into ramekins. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high and set time for 11 minutes.
When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to producer’s directions. Do not skip the 10-minute natural release because this allows your Creme Brulee to finish the cooking process.
To make sure the Creme Brulee is ready, insert a knife in center – it should come out clean, though the center will still be soft. Remove ramekins from the pressure cooker using tongs. Cool for 10 minutes, then cover and put to the fridge for at least 4 hours.
Combine two sugars and sprinkle over ramekins. To make the beautiful, distinctive top of our Maple Creme Brulee, hold a kitchen torch about 2 in. above dessert surface and let sugar slowly caramelized.
Now it’s high time to take our Maple Creme Brulee cups to the table!
